We went to see Dr. Hurley today, the perinatologist that does our ultrasounds. The babies look great and surprisingly, still have room to grow!!! Yes, that’s right, they still have fluid and room to grow in their little studio apartment. Baby A is not even “dropped/engaged” yet either (can’t imagine how that’s gonna affect my waddle.) Also, the best news, is that their estimated weights are 5lbs 11oz and 5lbs 14oz!!! We know these are estimations, but it is very encouraging. The x-ray tech just kept joking, “they must not know twins aren’t suppose to get this big…” So, the docs word is that if they don’t come by 39 weeks, they’ll have to start taking some action. 39 WEEKS!!! Crazy huh. We go to the OB checkup tomorrow and he will tell us if we are any closer to delivery. I’m doing good though, my sleep is good most nights, and I’m less afraid to do more now that the boys are bigger and safe (not that doing “more” is very much…) My belly is soooo heavy. I realized the magnitude of it yesterday as I spent some good time in a pool, then when I went to the stairs to get out, my once weightless belly was now a ton of bricks, no exaggeration. So speaking of belly, I’d like to share some of the comments I recieve as I venture into society for your own belly laughs!
“Mommy, she’s fat.”
“You look like you’re gonna pop!”
“You’re still walking around?”
Grandma says, “Sally, what are you doing to us?”
At Dions, as I was holding a 15 month old for my friend I heard some guy say behind me, “That’s not even funny.”
And then there was the interesting hippy lady at the natural foods store that didn’t say anything, but gave me a really funny pointing hand motion and giggle. I just said, “Hi.” Later I realized she was a “little pregnant” and that factor was our cosmic connection!
